People often ask, “Will your products make me fat, with all the fat you use?” Actually, the opposite is true. Eating the right type of saturated fat can actually help you loose weight. Here's why:
There are two significant books to recommend on just this point. The first is "Eat Fat, Get Thin" by Mark Hyman the head of functional medicine at the Cleveland Clinic; and the second is "Eat Fat, Lose Fat" by lipid expert Mary Enig and Sally Fallon. These books demonstrate the value of coconut oil and other healthy fats in prolonging life with vigor by shifting diets to incorporating high quality fats.
If you study the diets of Pacific culture, you will find a whole lot of people consuming coconut with very little heart disease and obesity. Why? Because in moderation, coconut fat helps boost your immunity, metabolism, and heart health.
If you want to lose weight, especially those pounds in your mid-section, eat coconut oil, as your liver will transform the fat into energy. People often eat way too much carbs and way too much sugar. Our livers take all those simple carbs and sweets and turn them into body fat. Even if you exercise like crazy while consuming a steady diet of white flour, white sugar, and soybean oil, you will add a lot of extra weight and endanger your health.
We use coconut oil in many of our products, including popcorn, seed & nut mix, sauces and gluten-free cornbread. To complement the coconut oil, we add some red palm oil which has similar properties to coconut oil, but adds some special nutrients (vitamins A & E) to diversify our products’ nutritional profile and offer a range of nutrients.
